WEE has entered the UAE market recently, but has already been able to win over the audience and offer a unique fast delivery service in the selected time slots. The company understands e-commerce trends and therefore knows what partners need now and how the customer experience will evolve,” added Sami M. Al Mohammad, Group CEO of SIG Investments.

With the UAE e-commerce market projected to surge to $20 billion by 2027, and express delivery accounting for a significant share, WEE is well-positioned to capitalise on this burgeoning market.
